Born and raised in the South Bay area of Palos Verdes, Chad is a full-time realtor who has been awarded Top Producing Realtor in the South Bay the last 19 consecutive years. In those 19 years, he has been recognized in the top 1% Nationally and sold over $800 million in residential real estate.

His success can be attributed to his foundational belief: personal service. Chad specializes in helping clients from Manhattan Beach to Palos Verdes devise the best strategies for buying and selling single family homes, condos, town-homes and income properties alongside delivering the highest level of customer service in the South Bay real estate market.

Some of Chad’s clients have included Fortune 500 CEOs/ Management, Finance and Private Equity Executives, Technology, Entertainment, professional athletes, and Hollywood professionals.

After growing up in Palos Verdes and venturing to the University of Colorado at Boulder where he received his Bachelor of Arts in Communications, he returned back to the South Bay to marry his wife Aimee Fahlbusch, who was born and raised in Kauai, Hawaii. Chad and Aimee are the proud parents of two boys, Thatcher and Blake. Chad and Aimee are extremely active in the community and are avid participants in the Manhattan Beach Ed Foundation/PTA sponsorship. Chad proudly sponsors Mira Costa High School sports, Hermosa Beach Little League, local club volleyball teams, and donates to the Manhattan Beach Education Foundation.

Chad’s business background started at a very early age after being raised in a family sports television business. His father owned VTE Mobile Television Productions which provided all of the live television production equipment, trucks and crews for over 1000 live sporting events annually. After graduating college he was involved in producing 3 years of Major League Baseball telecasts and managed major accounts with ESPN, ABC, and FOX sports. In July of 1998, the family business was sold and that was when the real estate bug finally hit Chad.

SouthBayChad is a known brand in the South Bay and we only refer to Chad for anything related to our home. We met 19 years ago in an open house he was hosting and he has helped us build wealth we could never have imagined by purchasing income property in the South Bay. We could not be where we are today financially without Chad's professional real estate services.


Chad has been a sponsor of my kid's little league for many years and we got to know him through his efforts in the Hermosa Beach community. Chad has always supported Hermosa Schools and Little League. You will not find a more passionate Realtor in the South Bay and he treats everyone so well. We highly recommend SouthBayChad if you are looking for a Realtor.


Chad has been working in the South Bay for 20 years and we have used him 5 times to sell our properties all over the South Bay. His emphasis on preparing our properties for sale was brilliant and his staging team did a great job which we think got us the best price. Michelle his Listing Coordinator made this entire process smooth and their team handled everything for us. SouthBayChad is a brand that sellers benefit from!


In this frenetic housing market we needed someone that could both keep us abredst of the housing landscape on a daily (almost hourly!) basis and keep us sane at the same time... not an easy task! SouthBayChad performed these duties in a professional and compasionate manner, delivering us our dream home. Not to mention, he gifted us an incredible portrait of our new home... thanks SouthBayChad!


Chad listed our home and got us over list price with-in 7 days. He was a full service realtor for us who listed the home, marketed the home with awesome creative advertising, lined up ALL inspections, met all of the inspectors at the home, arranged cleaners, handymen, painters, and above all negotiated to get us OVER list price. Chad communicated with us daily and assigned a full time transaction coordinator to us throughout the escrow period. We highly recommend Chad Fahlbusch to anyone looking to sell or buy a home in the South Bay.

Chad was everything you could ask of a realtor. Having been referred to him, right when we met him we knew we were in good hands. Chad took a very strategic approach and it was great to see how this very challenging real estate market in the South Bay has to be navigated. Chad found our home off market before anyone had seen it. It blew us away and because Chad grew up in the South Bay he found this home just because he knows everyone in town. It was a fantastic experience and his level of professionalism was what we cannot say enough about. Thank you Chad for finding us a great place to call home.

Chad treated me more like a friend than a client. I am a beginning investor and he was always willing to answer my questions, no matter how basic. He also provided me with excellent contacts so that I could pick the partners I needed to create the deal that was right for me.

Simply put, if you are in the market for a home you have to work with Chad. We have bought homes in New York, Chicago, and now LA. We have never had the level of service, market knowledge and communication than what we got with Chad. To top it off, he introduced us to everyone he knows in town and we could not be happier. We see him all over town and he is always asking us if there is anything he can do for us. We highly recommend Chad Fahlbusch for your home purchase.
